He came to the United States in 1939 to work as a commercial illustrator, and received news in 1945 that ‘All is lost’—the extermination by the Nazis of his mother, father, brother and 80 other family members. He then spent the next 60 years becoming a painter, imagining the circumstances of his people and that world, and giving us deeply felt images and a record of one person’s efforts to live with this knowledge and loss and finding the courage and will to affirm life. He was an award-winning artist with works in many museums. Ann Pachner is an artist who lives and works in New York City. She has a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts.

Author Heather Morris’s talk is the culminating event of the library’s thirteenth Wilton Reads town-wide reading program.  Ms. Morris will be presented with the Grodin Family Fine Writers Award before her talk. The Tattooist of Auschwitz is a vivid, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful re-creation of Lale Sokolov's experiences as the man who tattooed the arms of thousands of prisoners with what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust. The historical fiction based on Lale’s life also is a testament to the endurance of love and humanity under the darkest possible conditions. Heather Morris is a native of New Zealand, now residing in Australia. She was introduced to an elderly gentleman who ‘might just have a story worth telling’. The day she met Lale Sokolov changed both their lives. Their friendship grew and Lale embarked on a journey of self-scrutiny, entrusting the innermost details of his life during the Holocaust to her. Q&A will follow the talk. No charge. Registration highly recommended. Books available for purchase and signing courtesy of Elm Street Books, New Canaan. Media Sponsor: GOOD Morning Wilton.

Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Nobel Price-winning author Kazuo Ishiguro's novel An Artist of the Floating World is a first-person narrative of an elderly Japanese artist looking back on his life and career. Masuji Ono reflects on his choices, actions, and errors particularly during the period leading up to and after World War Two. His reflections and reconsiderations span both aesthetic and political themes as well as the loyalties due to one's teacher, one's country, and one's art. Written in a lyrical style, Ishiguro's novel combines elements of historical, literary, and psychological fiction.  In its review, Library Journal asks: "Should he have remained a traditional painter of the floating world, of geishas, tea houses, and such? Should an artist follow an aesthetic of pure art or of social involvement? How does a person or a society come to terms with mistakes of the past?"

ROAR's (Ridgefield Operation Animal Rescue) Therapy Dog Program will be bringing a therapy dog to be read to by children.  The use of trained therapy dogs in reading programs can result in children who feel comfortable reading out loud, read more often, attempt more difficult books, and look forward to reading. As they improve their literacy skills, they’re not just learning how to read, they’re learning to love to read!  Children must read independently to participate in this program.  No program charge, registration is required.  Register online or call 203-762-6336.

Senior Center Book Discussion: Leonardo da Vinci

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Leonardo da Vinci died 500 years ago in May of 1519 so it's fitting that we take up the biography of this amazing intellectual and creative giant, the prototypical "Renaissance Man". After his highly successful biographies of Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, and Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson immersed himself in the thousands of pages of Leonardo's notebooks, among other sources and materials, to produce this multi-faceted portrait. David McCullough wrote: "To read this magnificent biography of Leonardo da Vinci is to take a tour through the life and works of one of the most extraordinary human beings of all time and in the company of the most engaging, informed, and insightful guide imaginable. Walter Isaacson is at once a true scholar and a spellbinding writer. And what a wealth of lessons there are to be learned in these pages."
